Firefighters were called out to tackle a care on fire last night in Sheffield

Fire crews from the Elm Lane Fire Station were called out last night, July 6, to reports of a car fire on Wheel Lane in the Grenoside area of Sheffield.

Upon arrival at around 8:30pm, it was established that the fire was accidental and was due to an electrical fault.

The driver, after realising there was a problem with the car, pulled over to the side of the road to call the fire brigade and escaped unharmed.

Fire crews were able to distinguish the fire safely and quickly.
